I would like to learn SAS because of the good job prospects in that field.I have done my homework of doing research on SAS and I have an overview of the areas where SAS is applied(pharma, health and insurance companies) and the modules it includes(SAS/BASE, SAS/STAT, SAS/MACROS, SAS/SQL, SAS /ACCESS, SAS/CONNECT, SAS/FSP and SAS/ODS). I have good object oriented programming knowledge.
Could any one provide me information for the following questions?
1. Which is the best book to learn SAS?
2. In order to get into good fetching job, which modules I need to master initially and in which fields those modules can be used?
3.In order to get job, is it advisable to take certification? If so, could any one recommend the book too?
4. Could anyone forward me the url or any online material to firstname.lastname@example.org?
5. Could any one recommend me the best place I can get trained on SAS?
Really appreciate any help.
